In any case, it takes the'bad position because it must. Of c~urse, any one ,nay easily lec- ognize the likeness of these con~bta)I~s to those at:fecting hunlan h,cati~nis. A business man does not select :t bad location because he prefers it, but lie- cause it is the best that is left tc, him and because he hopes to make ,t pay by hard work and care. A tenalu does not take a bad rental because h,~' wants it but because nothing.;- better has been left for him within his abil- ity to pay. In spite of his intelli- gence, :nan resenlbles other living things in having to take what he can get as a general thing, although or- ganized society ought to m'tkc ,iw~,r- tunities more favorable and nit,re nearly equal th'an they are. -.rl: CHRISTIAN SCIENCE CHURCHES Paul's words, "My God shall SUpl,ly all your need according to his rich.:s in glory by Christ Jesus," c,,nstitutcd the Gohten Text in the Lesson-Ser- lnOll Oil "~nbstance" (511 ~ull,lav In Christian Science Society el Avahm, branch of The Mother Church, The First Churc of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass. One of the Bible citations presented Cllrist Jesus' words: "And why take ye thought for raiment ? Consider tile lilies of the fieht, how they gr:,w; they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet i say unto you, Tha: c\cn Solomon ill all his glory was u.~t ar- rayed like one of these. \Vherefore. if God so clothe the grass of tile field, which today is, and tomorr,)w is cast into the oven, shall he no= much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, ,aying, What shall we eat? or, \~,ha; shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? ... But seek yc first the kingdom of God, and his righteous- ness; and all these things shall be added unto yotx."
